and break down the sound and the major issues. joining me in washington is cnn political krkter and democratic strategist donna brazile and the former deputy assistant secretary of state liz cheney. welcome. let's start with this debate, po both the policy and politics of the terror debate. the president came out this past week and he said i'm the president, the buck stops with me. he used an interesting term. your father, the former vice president, other conservatives have said this president has gone soft, doesn't view it as a war. the president did come out and said we are at war. were you satisfied with that? do you see from your perspective an improved obama response? >> no. i mean, i didn't think it was satisfactory. it requires more from your commander in chief than just saying we're at war. the president himself has to exercise daily, consistent, unwavering stewardship. if you look at the performance after the president of john brennan and homeland security secretary napolitano, you know, we had both of them say they were surprised that al qaeda in the arabian peninsula
